thyssenkrupp: New crusher revolutionizes material processing in mining

With the development of a completely new type of crusher, the so-called eccentric roll crusher type ERC25-25, thyssenkrupp has achieved a quantum leap in primary crushing. The new crusher features a particularly flat and robust design and high throughputs of up to 3,000 tons per hour, enabling it to process hard rock and ores efficiently and economically in underground mining operations. As the centerpiece of a mobile or semi- mobile system the eccentric roll crusher also enhances cost efficiency in surface mining. In the future, the new series will be supplemented with further models to enable both smaller and higher throughput capacities for different applications.
